We spent our summer holiday at this B&B - and Jo and Mike did everything to make it a wonderful experience! They have made an enormous effort to make their B&B a huge success, caring very much for the minor details.
It is true, the nightly traffic noise is a reality, but each night you will find new ear-plugs which are efficient enough to help even me - a notoriously bad sleeper - to drop off and get some sound sleep. The matresses are very comfortable and the beds (we can talk for the Hodnet double room and are confirmed by our daughter about Ironbridge) are equipped with anti-allergic covers, so there is no reason to complain at all even if you must consider yourself a sensitive guest.
Mind you, in daytime, the situation of the house is an advantage - you'll get everywhere in a reasonable time (towns like Shrewsbury or Chester, regions like Wales or the Peaks), and Market Drayton or Whitchurch are nearby so you can find your supermarket (if necessary).
Another big point was the food. Even in England (spaking as a German), it is occasionally difficult to find reliable gluten-free diet, and some inns boast with their menu on their website and what you get in reality is a steak with chips and peas or a jacket potato with hot butter (both of which are ok once in a while, but not on regular terms). Not so with Ternhill Farm House: Each of the selection of approximately 10 regular dishes, special offers aside, is available in excellent gluten-free quality. Breakfast: You'll get a choice of yummy variations, ranging from a full English Breakfast to the standard Continental, but in between you'll find combinations of egg and salmon, or poached eggs, or mushroom and cheese, or simply beans (all of this selection on toast) - so everybody should find themselves a breakfast for their individual needs (again, gluten-free or dairy-free, no problem).
Last not least, we should also gratefully mention Mike's daily suggestions for day trips into Shropshire, and (once again) each of them was a success and a very welcome addition to our own plans. Everybody else in the staff was extremely friendly, and they made us miss the place very much even now, 10 days after our return to Germany.
All in all, we are determined to go back there next year - and look happily forward to seeing them all again!
